Browne Jacobson builds on pensions

Nottingham law firm Browne Jacobson has recruited a former City partner to head up its pensions practice.

Richard Hulland was a partner at McKenna & Co and Simmons & Simmons before setting up his own practice, based near St Albans, nine years ago.

Hulland is to bring his existing clients to his new firm.

“Not only is Browne Jacobson getting an experienced pensions lawyer, but I am also bringing in what is a good quality pensions practice in its own right,” he says.

Hulland replaces Kevin Milton, who was poached by Garretts.

He has been charged with building up his new department, and is planning to recruit pensions lawyers.

Head of company and commercial at Browne Jacobson, Peter Hands, says: “We are delighted to welcome Richard to the firm.

“He brings with him more than 20 years experience of dedicated pensions work.

“We are keen to build on the excellent work we have done in the area.

“I believe that there is tremendous potential for increased stand-alone pensions work as well as development of the corporate, insurance and regulatory aspects for which we are renowned.”
